in the 1960's there were nine major auto makers. In 1990 the number rose to nineteen auto makers. Why did more countries start producing aoutmobiles?
because cars became popular and a better source of transportation
First, the market for new cars grew terrifically as more and more people in the world were able to afford cars.
Second, other countries wanted in on the huge profitablility for selling cars to the world's expanding population.
